Not great numbers or species this morning, but with the wind it turned out better than expected. Sixteen birds of seven species handled with no recaptures. White-throated Sparrows now starting to appear in good numbers. Thanks to our four volunteer helpers enduring a blustery day. Only two banding days left for the season - Monday, Oct. 16 and Wednesday, Oct. 18 both at the Air Quality site.
New Banded: Swainson's Thrush 1 Hermit Thrush 1 G. Catbird 1 Swamp Sparrow 1 White-throated Sparrow 6 E. Towhee 3 N. Cardinal 3
